POE on VWP

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello everyone

So i'm arriving in Dallas on the 4th June and just i'm really worried about being denied entry. I'm visiting my girlfriend hopefully for the 90 days if allocated.

Do many people have problems with POE on the VWP? Ties i have to my home country are:

A cell phone contract for 24 months which i have only just started in the last 2 weeks, the phone was free on the plan so if canceled there are fees.

My car insurance will be due while i'm away and will have that to pay when i arrive home(car will not be used by anyone else whilst away).

I have bank statements to show i have plenty of money to easily support myself.

I do not have a job as my position needs to be replaced. My job also provided a house so i have no rent or lease payments.

When i return i will be living with my parents for a few weeks until a new job is found.

And of course i have a return ticket.

So what are my chances? i know that it all depends on the inspector dude at the POE, but do i have anything to be worried about?

Thanks for any replies.

I'm in the same boat. I'm going on the 3rd of June, and I'll be staying for 88 days with my boyfriend. I've visited him once before, for 18 days in January this year.

I don't have a job, nor am I studying. I'm just going there for the summer for vacation.

My only "ties" to my home country (Sweden) are family ties. I have a return ticket, and insurance papers for my home and travel insurance. I'm also bringing a bank statement to show them I'll be able to support myself during my stay, and of course my bank/credit card that's connected to my bank account. I've applied for some courses at the university for this coming fall, and I'm going to bring a paper that shows what courses I've applied for. Unfortunately, I won't get the acceptance notice intil July, so I hope showing them this will be enough.

I'm also going to live at my parents house this coming fall, while I'm looking for a job.

I'm also nervous about the POE, which will be in Newark. But people have told me not to worry too much, and to be truthful at the POE and not acting nervous and scared, and I'll be fine. I didn't overstay the last time I was in the US, nor am I going to do so this time. Nor am I going to work illegal, so I shouldn't be worried.

I think it also depends a lot on the country u are from.

Me, I never had any problems visiting my fiance. They never asked for any ties...

If u are from a third world country ur chances are low that they're gonna let u in... Of course it's not impossible but I wouldn't take the risk :/

Nymphadroa, u should be fine. Don't worry too much like I did ;) It's just gonna give u grey hair lol

Your chances are pretty good, unless you have been in the USA a lot recently

Guys, I just entered on the VWP with my wife, blatently telling the CBP officer we're married. He just asked how long I was staying and if I had ESTA in order. Then he joked about how much nicer the US stamps were than the Candian stamps.

You'll be FINE. :yes:

Don't lose any sleep over it. Is your ESTA OK? If so, there is nothing to fear.

You have no ties, you will probably be OK, nothing you can do but see anyway.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
